So she got rid of Cinder because she/he didn't like her or someof the animals. And that the cat really loved her husband. I wonder how he feels that an animal that loves him gets rehomed with other animals that are more dependant on her gets to stay.
Sorry but Katz has a major problem here. She can not keep getting animals and rehoming them. She is not a rescue. All she is doing is upsetting the animals more. This has got to stop.
I may be wrong, but I've been following this story both here and on another forum and the way that I see it, and someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that ANYONE is mad at Katz for taking the dog from the Shelter. The problem is that she she said she was FOSTERING the dog. I don't know Katz well, but I undestand that she has a history of adopting pets and then re-homing them.
There is nothing wrong with fostering animals. It saves many furry lives, but it should be done properly and one person should not take it upon thmelves to do it alone.
Why she she chose not to tell everyone that she adopted Harley, I have no idea. I think that much of the situation could have been avoided if she had the told the truth in the first place .... that being that she adopted Harley and was planning on re-homing him.

scenicvalesiberians, not that any explaination is due you, Katz posted a message to me specifically asking to be removed from this forum and to have her posts deleted. I followed her wishes. So back off~

no one is upset at Katz as a person, We don't personally know her. were all upset at what she is doing. There is a difference. What we would like to see is her do the right thing, pay for the surgury, she keeps saying she never intended to keep this dog, but thats not entirly true, as she did talk about keeping him, she was undecided. Now that he needs her she should honor the commitment she made when she adopted him. Keep all the animals she has until they die of old age, and not get anymore until all of these are gone, which would be years from now. that would be the right thing to do.
I honestly do not think that ALL of her posts be deleated. Maybe the ones concerning these dogs and cats that she has rehomed. But any posts with advice to anyone in certain situations and such shouldn't be, this may come in helpful for someone else in the future. I guess that is what I meant, and not that NONE of them should be deleted. Sorry if I was misunderstood. But whatever, you are the mod and you can decide what ones to delete or not. I just thought that ones where she offered advice should not be because of the helpfulness to others.
Wow-I haven't checked in for 2-3 days, and look what I miss! Can't say that I'm surprised. When she said about adopting that kitten, I knew one of the other cats would go. And adopting a male chow, after getting rid of Koda because of behavior problems? How dumb can you be? And one last thing, and then I will drop this forever, since Katz seems to be gone for real this time. Did anyone actually believe that story about Koda going to be a service dog? I mean, come on! First of all, what kind of "service"? Notice, she never really said. And second, how many places do you know that want a middle aged, mixed breed dog with health problems and temperment problems? And then after saying he was going to be a service dog, all of a sudden she finds the "perfect" owners for Koda. Of course, they just happen to live 1000 miles away, and she's never met them. Yeah, that's perfect....
I kind of skimmed when I read that she wanted all her posts deleted. My bad.
Anyways, what is happening with the shelter who found out she is rehoming these dogs that she "adopts"? Are they going to do something about Harley? And did she sign a contract (I assume she did to adopt) that is legally binding that will be able to do something about this mess?
wow..what you dont read when your not on all the time..I thank all the ones who posted with explanations..and I found none inflamitory or nasty, great job all for posting facts with out making it sound so horrable....I am not suprised..but I am saddened..I really do think it is good that the pound authorities know what she is all about...it might help her in the long run..but..there is always classifieds...it is too bad...
It all makes sense. I don't see crossing of lines. After the lies had been called she made bigger ones. Bunch of people were tired of the coddling and finally posted the truth. She brought it over here. We kept quiet till she started on here.
The shelter had EVERY right to know that one of their dogs they adopted out is in the hands of someone that NEVER keeps their dogs and cats longer than a couple months. They had every right to know she has no intention of giving him the medical care he so needs. SHE is the one that crossed the line by taking this dog into her own hands for her own satisfcation.
Wait, wait, wait. What's going on here??? I leave for ten hours to go to my day job, and when I get back there's all this added drama??? Dude, I need to start checking this site during lunch.
Anyhoo, from this tried I gathered that katz asked to be removed from the forum. But what I'm missing is why the h*ll would she do that? I guess what I'm asking is what pushed her over the edge. I mean, I know some members have called her out on less-than-truthful stories before in the past, but in general she seemed liked a nice person that was well liked by most here. Why is she gone and why does Pope have to justify her actions?
I have been gone for months and months and I come back to see what is going on... It is the same ol' bashing. I'm sure I will get bashed for saying it, but whatever. Katz and I have had our own problems in the past, but to be bashed like this and for someone to even say she has a mental problem. People, get a life! Maybe if the posts had been left up, I would feel differently. But it seems really strange to me that someone would know enough about another member of a forum to be able to list out every animal they have ever owned. It must have taken you days to look all of that up. Not trying to start trouble, I just hate when everyone gangs up on one person. It use to be me.
